Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticeable difference I've been using D-76 for a while, and there is, at least for me, a noticeable improvement in the quality and clarity of the detail I get with Id-11.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old Fashioned Quality After a few years of Testing/Trying, I think I am sticking with ID-11. 1. I feel it gives about the best balance, with different papers, and film brands, of any chemistry available. 2. The Ilford time chart seems to be right on the money for Kodak and Ilford films. 3. It is pretty economical, and it stores relatively well. 4. The only bad thing.......being a powder, it likes hot water to facilitate correct Mixing/Dilution. A straight 5 litres takes about 3 hours in the refrigerator to hit 70 degrees. So you need to think ahead. There are some tricks, of course, to help speed up that transition time, but the point is, you will not be going from mix and then straight into a developing tank. Such is life. If I am in a hurry, there are other Ilford developers to pinch-hit in that situation.....but I usually have the time for ID-11. Man...!! Not sure what the other customer was complaining about. The Instructions are about as simple as can be, and the time charts are very accurate IMO. good luck :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I've switched to this developer after using HC-110 for a number of years. I've found it to produce great results developing the Fuji Acros @ its standard ISO. Sharp, detailed images with a great range. Awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic with HP5 Plus I got this developer because I developed a roll of Ilford HP5 Plus in Kodak D-76 with terrible results. I figured that using the company's product with their film would yield better results and it did. I love the tonal range that I get from a roll of 120 HP5 Plus on either my Mamiya RB67 or my Rolleiflex 2.8. I do mostly street photography and the sharpness this developer produces with 400 speed film is phenomenal. I have also done some portraits and they come out tack sharp with very fine grain. Very impressed.Now, I have also read that D-76 and this ID-11 are just about identical and that people get great results developing HP5 Plus in D-76. To that end, it may just be that I made some error in developing that earlier role. However, my own experience tells me that this developer is much preferred. You can't go wrong with this stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great choice - easy to use I get great results with ID-11. It is easy to use and lasts well. If properly stored I get good results well beyond the stated shelf-life of the mixed developer. Make sure you have sufficient glass storage containers for the full volume when mixed and can move part-filled containers to a smaller container to minimize the air inside during storage. I wish it came in a size between the 1 liter and 5 liter quantities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't stop buying it! I recently only got into developing Black and White film so ID-11 is my first developer. So far it has worked wonders! It's super simple to mix into stock solution and the develop times provided by Ilford are very acurate! I recommend this as an amazing and inexpensive developer solution!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It developes film This worked exactly as described. I used it to develop some Ilford HP5 Plus and every thing came out great for me. As long as you have air tight containers to store you stock in this is quite a deal with 5 liters of stock for just $.
